American Institute of Stress Honors Product With Their First Award for Distinction and Innovation

BOULDER CREEK, Calif. -- HeartMath([R]) is honored to have their new handheld emWave Personal Stress Reliever([R]) technology be the first recipient of the American Institute of Stress Award for Distinction and Innovation. This award is granted to products and services that have been evaluated and validated by the American Institute of Stress ( emWave Personal Stress Reliever ( has become one of the leading personal stress reduction technologies on the market today. In 1999 HeartMath broke ground when they introduced the first affordable consumer stress-reduction technology product called the Freeze-Framer([R]) Interactive Learning System using their patented heart rhythm feedback. Their recent emWave Personal Stress Reliever embodies this same innovative technology in a mobile device that is sleek, convenient, and highly effective.

"We are proud to recognize HeartMath as the first recipient of our Award for Distinction and Innovation. The emWave Personal Stress Reliever is a unique stress reduction tool that is unusually effective for reducing stress, anxiety and improving performance", says Paul J. Rosch, M.D., F.A.C.P., President of the American Institute of Stress. "HeartMath has established themselves as a leader in the scientific community through their years of solid scientific research and in-depth understanding of stress and the physiology of emotions."

emWave Personal Stress Reliever essentially mirrors your emotional state by reading your heart rhythms and gives real-time feedback so you can effectively manage stress and reset your inner balance. emWave Personal Stress Reliever includes an animated instructional CD-Rom that guides you through one of HeartMath's scientifically-validated techniques for stress relief, called Quick Coherence([R]). The emWave Personal Stress Reliever is one of many components that comprise the HeartMath System ( of stress and performance solutions.

Dr. Rollin McCraty, Director of Research for HeartMath, says, "Receiving this award from an internationally recognized authority in stress medicine is an honor. We set out to create an effective stress-relieving technology that is scientifically sophisticated yet fun and simple to use. Taking 16 years of rigorous research and crunching it into personal technology that objectively and reliably measures heart coherence for stress reduction was quite an undertaking. This award confirms that we've successfully taken an advanced science and put it into a user-friendly format that anyone can use and benefit from."

More than a dozen independent studies utilizing HeartMath's technologies are underway. Respected organizations including Kaiser Permanente, Veterans Administration, and University of North Carolina are exploring the benefits of these technologies with various health challenges including anxiety, stress, ADHD, and hypertension.

A number of Veterans Administration Medical Centers have been using the emWave Personal Stress Reliever with veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), psychological and physical conditions, chronic pain, and substance abuse. emWave Personal Stress Reliever has been a very effective tool to help soldiers reestablish control over bodily functions and provide relief from strong emotional states, such as anger and anxiety, that are characteristic of PTSD.

HeartMath has earned a global reputation for their innovative research. The HeartMath System is being used by Duke Medical Center, Stanford Hospital and Clinics, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Sutter Health, and many other top medical centers around the world.
